After Loves It stopped playing full time, I got vocal nodules and couldn't sing loudly (my usual default mode of over singing was temporarily put on hiatus) and I was in West Virginia for a month. I stayed up most nights until the sun came up writing and recording this mellow EP on a $50 tascam tape four track. When I recorded it, I had no intentions of putting it out, but my roommate cleaned it up and made it sound less like socks, and I really like the way it sounds now, so I made it into a tape. Maine Matt did the art. It's probably my favorite thing I've ever recorded. Cheat aqua was a beer joint a mile from where I grew up, on the Cheat River in Macomber WV. You can listen to it HERE.
